The Crooked House in Sopot



The Crooked House in Sopot the winner of the Village of Joy competition for the strangest structure in the world. There were 50 very characteristic structures in the competition and the Crooked House was ahead of such buildings as the Torre Galatea Figueres in Spain, the public library in Kansas City, USA and the famous Guggenheim Museum in Bilbao. Its expressive shape resembles fairy-like drawings by Jan Szancer and Per Dahlberg as well as designs by Antonio Gaudi. Its front elevation, though different, fully harmonizes stylistically with neighbouring houses. The Crooked House is situated in Monciak- the famous Sopot promenade which is, first and foremost, a meeting place for the local bohemians as well as people seeking enjoyment and joyous otherness. There are lots of romantic cafés, restaurants, shops and places of amusement. It is the PINUS J&M Smolarczyk Co. that not only designed but also made the woodwork for the Crooked House. We are pleased to have been one of the contractors of the project.
